Title: Windi.exe Virus: Avast! doesn't touch it.
Post by: notentirelydim on January 27, 2016, 04:25:39 AM
Have resorted to manually removing infection in safe mode. Hope it works. Wonder why Avast! doesn't tackle it. Alternative approaches welcome!

It is not a virus but adware.
Make sure PUP detection is enabled.
